What could be better than a beautiful day in the country side with one of your best friends & homemade wine?? Yup.. that's how I spent last Saturday :) I snagged up a Groupon for Philip Carter Winery at only $34 which included a tour, a wine tasting, & a picnic basket filled with little snacks. It was my first time visiting a vineyard so I wasn't too sure what to expect, needless to say I didn't think about what season we're in which resulted in there being zero vines but it was still beautiful. We tried several different red & white wines my favorite one was the 2012 Gov. Fauquier which reminded me of Meet the Fockers .. anyways we enjoyed a bottle of it as we soaked up the sun's beautiful rays & it was the perfect way to end the afternoon.
Ahh looking at these pictures makes me miss Jenn even more, but I'll remember this fun afternoon for years to come :) I definitely want to visit more vineyards & look forward to seeing some actual vines & grapes next time I go! PS: since this is a small family owned winery all the grapes are picked by hand .. crazy right!? Well I'm off to Florida tomorrow for my friend Nicole's wedding so I'm not sure if I'll be updating while I'm there, but I wish you all a fun filled weekend <3
